The Elvis Experience by Dave Hebler DVD

From the press release : Dave Hebler is the 10th degree black belt 'kenpo karate' champion who was hired by Elvis himself as his personal bodyguard in 1972. During the next four years he became friends and confidant with the King. For the first time on film he tells about how they met, the crazy vegas years and how he experienced first hand what drugs did to Elvis. He also tells how the firing itself took place and what led him and two other bodyguards, Red & Sonny West, write the sensational book 'Elvis what happened' in 1977. The three received a lot of criticism from fans after the book (and still does), and now with the release of 'The Elvis Experience by Dave Hebler DVD' Dave finally answers back. Judge for yourself.

Elvis Films FAQ : All That's Left To Know About the King Of Rock 'N' Roll In Hollywood by Paul Simpson

Elvis Films FAQ : All That's Left To Know About the King Of Rock 'N' Roll In Hollywood byPaul Simpson : If Elvis Presley had not wanted to be a movie star, he would never have single-handedly revolutionized popular culture. Yet this aspect of his phenomenal career has been much maligned and misunderstood partly because the King himself once referred to his 33 movies as a rut he had got stuck in just off Hollywood Boulevard. Elvis Films FAQ explores his best and worst moments as an actor, analyzes the bizarre autobiographical detail that runs through so many of his films, and reflects on what it must be like to be idolized by millions around the world yet have to make a living singing about dogs, chambers of commerce, and fatally naive shrimps. Elvis' Hollywood years are full of mystery, and Elvis Films FAQ covers them all!

Promo Enhanced CD : 'The 50 Greatest Hits' CD & 'Elvis That's The Way It Is' DVD

TITLE: Four Track Enhanced CD Taken from 'The 50 Greatest Hits' CD & 'Elvis That's The Way It Is' (Special Edition) DVD. BACKGROUND: Upon release this promo sampler was described as 'the biggest ever Elvis promotion in British history'. This was in part because it was backed by 'a massive Television advertising campaign' which took place over the weekend of May 11/13th 2001. At the time there was significant support for BMG who 'supported and licensed this deal [and] are finally being allow...ed to promote Elvis with the enthusiasm, commitment and dedication that he deserves'. Sadly relatively few of these CDs have survived.

Amazing Previously Unseen Concert Film April 19, 1956

Some amazing previously unseen film from two of Elvis' concert performances [Note Elvis with fans mid clip indicating end of the first show] at the Municipal Auditorium, Oklahoma City has been posted on-line. The film by 'WKY News' features Elvis Presley, Scotty Moore , Bill Black and DJ Fontana and runs for 2:10. In what is excellent quality film, albeit with a watermark, we see Elvis performing at the Oklahoma City Auditorium on April 19, 1956. Scenes of the crowd [Looking quite sedate!!!], Elvis posing with fans and signing autographs. And Police escorting him out of building and woman chasing car, giving new meaning to 'Elvis has left the building'. It is only early 1956 and we see clearly the full impact of Elvis mania is yet to kick in.

It's back to the experts ... Elvis as a Teen? Photo From His Hometown in Tupelo, Mississippi

I have today talked with Wade Jones the owner of the Elvis photo from 1945 in this article and I am convinced that the image that has been released in full via Vanity Fair is exactly as he received it. And importantly Wade has pointed me to conclusive facts showing that the 'first' so called 'Photoshoped' image was made by a fan and published openly online, from there, somehow this then become 'Wade's' photo which it never was. So we go back to the experts who when asked, 'Is it real'? Is it really him?

Sony Legacy Release of 'Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis' to Include Richmond Concert

One of my favorite CD releases on the Follow That Dream collectors label for Elvis Presley fans is 2011's Forty-Eight Hours To Memphis, which captures a March 18, 1974, concert that Elvis performed at the Richmond Coliseum in Virginia. The confusing album title reflects that Elvis closed out his tour two days after the Richmond concert with a show in Memphis at the Mid-South Coliseum, portions of which became the 1974 album Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis. Elvis earned his third and final Grammy Award for his stellar performance of 'How Great Thou Art' in Memphis on the original 1974 album. The link between the two shows continues, for Sony announced last week that it will reissue the Richmond concert on the second disc of a Legacy Edition of Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis to be released on March 18.

Sweet Home Alabama 2 CD : Two Concerts : Mobile, June 2, 1975 A/S & E/S

The new TNT Record import label will soon release their second CD 'Sweet Home Alabama' containing the soundboard recordings from the June 2, 1975 afternoon and evening shows. After their first title 'Goin' Back To Houston' quickly selling-out of again with a little help from our friends at 'Audionics' - probably the premium and still active label when it comes to rare recordings in best possible sound - we decided once more to pick two shows from 'Tour Number 14' (May 30 ‚Äď June 10, 1975).

1969 3 CD Box Set from Gravel Road Music : Release Date January 3rd

Gravel Road Music's 3CD Memphis 1969 box will be released January 3rd. This release is intended to be a flawless release with the best sounding Elvis of 1969. We started by going back to the basic recordings of the American sound studio; the edited repaired master tracks without the dubbing done later in Nashville. The combination package 'Elvis In Person & Back in Memphis' was the basic concept, but we wanted more. During the first days of the comeback in Las Vegas in 1969, special RCA presentation box sets were given away. These box sets are very rare and expensive to get hold of. This was the perfect 1969 package idea for this release. Included are: The reproduction slipcase of the famous 1969 presentation box set ...
